    Labor Day is almost here, so time to plan for winterizing. I've always liked having a compact truckmount compressor, no matter what you rent for the bulk of the work. However, the complete units sold today seem a little cheesy compared to yesteryear's equipment. That said, there are few practical alternatives, unless you build your own rig, with a pump you might find on an auction site.

    Someone in western Pennsylvania might be able to cobble together a good one, because a quality pump is on eBay right now

    I'm looking to get one mounted inside the van this year for one of my guys. I need to hook up with TomTom to look at his a little closer.

    The nice thing about the one in the picture, is that it has head unloaders, which allows it to run from a gasoline engine.

    I can back up with a tow-behind compressor on an uphill curving driveway about as well as I can sing opera.
